    Great stuff! Especially liked the Macavity First Lines discussion and the weird weapons from movies video. The killer hat from Goldfinger is a classic. Wish they’d also included the pneumatic cattle punch from No Country for Old Men. I think I’ll never tire of watching that movie.

    Best wishes,
